Medal of Honor Winner Added to Hall of Heroes

There are more honors for a Third Infantry Division soldier killed early in the war in Iraq. They added Sgt. 1st Class Paul Smith's portrait to the Pentagon's Hall of Heroes yesterday.

Smith's wife and two children joined defense secretary Donald Rumsfeld unveiling Smith's portrait and a plaque.

Smith died fighting against overwhelming odds, protecting his troops near Baghdad International Airport two years ago this week.

President George Bush presented Smith's family the Medal of Honor Monday.
